Jinx and The Doom FIGHT CRIME!


Illustrated by Samantha Cotterill

Jinx and her little brother, the Doom, are pretty typical kids—except when they turn into superheroes and fight crime—in this relatable celebration of siblings and imagination by the author of Strictly No Elephants.

A typical day for Jinx and the Doom looks like this: wake up, eat breakfast, brush teeth—then FIGHT CRIME! These rambunctious kids used to fight each other, until one day they realized that they could use their powers for good instead of evil. So now they protect the planet! Defend the innocent! And then stop to have lunch.

Bright cut-paper, comic book–style illustrations highlight the power of imagination and the joy of having a sibling to play with.
